Clean Up notes:
The pauses between songs are found on my cassette (I should have known better)
Some editing was done to smooth these transitions out better
Tape flips were spliced as needed, the amplitude was increased and DC offsett correction was applied
The second set recording started late and the beginning of Scarlet Begonias is missing
It was an unfortunate coincidence that with these edits the second set fits on 1 cd

Subject: I Agree Guys. Outstanding Recording !!!
Average 1st set with a very good 2nd set that has lots more energy. With all the bumps and bruises of this imperfect recording and the song selection for the show's ending close to being a blowout five, I'd call this a solid four star show. OMSN is not one of my favorite songs. I usually edit it out when I can, splicing in the encore when possible. But this one is balls-E !!!
Per the overall crispyness and clarity, Bobby's and Jerry's vocals are very up front in the first set, which I added a healthy portion of reverb to along with a smidgen of bass in Soundforge to further soften them up - which is rare for an audience recording. Another fixable problem was increasing the volume of Black Peter. Highly recommended for the sound quality alone. Hopefully, you also have the ability to edit out some of the bugs.
Subject: Heart of gold band
Tonight's performance is overall a complete ensemble performance by the heart of gold, with Phil offering some of his best playing up through drumz, as the music plays the band this night.
The show opens with a very rare pairing of Stranger, which is still an infant by this time, as the band pushing the boundaries of exploration and delivers a very noteworthy reading.
Jerry is lower in the mix than the previous night;and that does not mean his playing is any different, but this FOB will surely please any audio file as it has even better lower end and the drums are clear,balanced, and full of punch as well.
Sugaree is majestic and played with that attention to detail that made this song a crowd favorite.
Brent's growing strength in the band is quite evident as he unleashes swirling playing on the B3.
The band having already played closed to 18 minutes continues on with a sleek CC Rider.Jerry continues his love of playing To Lay Me Down this year and the band produces yet another heartfelt version.
Phil's playing is more prominent and well done on this one.
Bobby's odd choice of Minglewood is the set's only misstep, although energetic as it seems alittle redundant and Bob's seagull slide solo is pushing the limits of good taste.
Ramble on Rose is a second joyous march toward the jubilee and is well received.
The set end with a LSD inspired signature trifecta that covers all the bases of what true great modern GD was like live.
Jerry bookends this set with a rowdy Deal that predicts the forthcoming greatness of set two.
The second set, at least the first half, is the band at the peak of its power and unleashes another famous trifecta of passion, power , and exploration.
With this superb audience recording you are right there and from the joyous romantic yearnings of Scarlet Begonias to the thundering righteousness of Fire on the Mountain to the exploratory reading of Playing in the Band, it it is a wondrous ride.
The band clearly exceeds on all levels. Jerry clearly is playing at the best of his abilities.
Yipeee for all!
The fun does not stop there as you get a tribal drumz piece that features two percussion greats sitting in with Bill and Mickey, and that in itself raises this night's performance.
The short post drumz space is cool but would have funner if it was much longer. As is typical of many shows of this era the post drumz is good but not the high light of the show.
The very familiar closing trio of NFA> Black Peter> Sugar Magnolia is excellent but not mind blowing, as Phil is fading into the back ground and not nearly dominate as he was earlier in the night.
None the less it is wicked fun and each song is played extremely well. Bill and Mickey really drive NFA with a thunderous rhythm.
I would say Black Peter, as the blues continue to be a theme this night, is the best of the three.
Saturday night rages and Phil adds some power notes.
